Today is technically the fist day of Spring, the Vernal Equinox, the day that we can finally declare that Winter is gone, and warm days full of sunshine and flowers are on their way.
But do we pull out and install the air conditioners? Do we put away our winter gear for good? With the way Chicago weather goes, we're all expecting at least one more cold snap before spring really kicks in. To be honest, I'd enjoy that, since I'm not the biggest fan of summer.
I am, however, a fan of open windows, sitting on my balcony and tending to the garden-boxes, enjoying icy drinks with friends, and leaving my coat in the closet. So, if spring is here to stay, I think that'll be just fine.
